Just moved into a new apartment, I know this issue is with the computer because my roommates computers are able to access the internet. Both my LAN and wireless are connected, firewalled, but when I open my browser I get nothing. Any help will be appreciated.

open a command prompt and type "ipconfig" and tell us the results.

Then type "ping google.com" and see if there is a reply. if not, try "ping (fill in your default gateway here)" let us know if theres a reply to that.

If you get replies to all, try disabling your firewall and trying your browser again. if firefox still doesnt work try the old explorer and see if that works. Let us know!
